Would this count for reviving a Pack that was defunct (or inactive) for a period of years?

Bryon - It is only for NEW charters. If you start up a Pack at the same charter organization but using a new charter, that would work.

We just found out about this patch. Are pack just started last September so would we qualify for this patch even though we rechartered in March.
Jun 05, 2013 - Scouter Paul
Elba - everyone that joined the Pack prior to your rechartering can wear the patch.

If you were a founding member of a pack, and then moved away, do you have to remove the founder badge if you take on a role in another pack?
Jul 13, 2013 - Scouter Paul
@Cubmaster Again - Yes, the Founder's Bar is only to be worn while an active member in that particular unit.

Can the founder bar be worn with the trained bar?
Oct 05, 2013 - Scouter Paul
@Kat - Yes, both can be worn.

Thank you! My friend and I started a pack for our sons NYC public school. We have 48 boys and I'd love to get this patch for them!

We are not a new pack but have re-chartered under a new organization as of this fall. Is this an award the pack members can wear?
Jan 11, 2014 - Yukon Jack
@ Mr. Jones. No, merely changing chartered organization partners does not entitle your units scouts and scouters to wear the Founders Bar. Only those who were members of your pack during its initial year of existence (the original charter or joined before the first re-charter) may wear the bar.

We earned the Founders Bar for a Pack. My son is aging up to a Troop, chartered by the same organization. Can he continue to wear the Founders Bar on his Boy Scout uniform?
Mar 19, 2014 - Scouter Paul
@Jim - No, the Founders bar is for a specific unit. A Pack and a Troop are two separate units.
